Can anybody find me a good Shoe-Fly Pie?

This may be a crazy request, but can someone out there find me any really good Shoe-Fly Pie artisans out there in Schuylkill County?

This summer, the Pennsylvania Tourism Office will be launching a fun new marketing campaign aimed at bringing visitors to the state in search of their one true love. Well, the story is something like this: There was this young 12 year old, who with his family, visited a diner in the Pa Dutch region of the state ten years ago. At the diner, he was served his very first Shoe Fly Pie and fell in love. Ten years later, he has set out in search of his one true love in Pennsylvania. The details of this story will be released real soon ...

In May we will celebrate National Shoe Fly Pie Day in Pennsylvania. So between now and then, I am going to explore the county in search of a Shoe Fly Pie worthy of visitor attention. I will also be looking for a waitress who fits the description provided by this young man who is now roaming the countryside on his orange motor scotter and side car.

When May arrives, I hope to have created a list of diners, restaurants and eateries who have home made Shoe Fly Pie under their dessert glass. Maybe the right Shoe Fly Pie is made right here in Schuylkill County?

Here is the challenge. The person that provides me with the most bonafide Shoe Fly Pie outlets in Schuylkill County, will be treated to one piece of Shoe Fly Pie, compliments of me! You have until April 24th 2009!
Ready, Set, Go!
